republicans dealing with fiscal cliff and debt ceiling and sequestration -- the average family in this country lives with debt. quite a bit of that. they do not look at that as a bad thing. it is what enables them to own a home. to send a kid to college. to buy a car. to start a business. to have a credit card that lets them go out to dinner once or twice a month. go on a family vacation. i do not think that makes them take. it makes them live their lives responsibly. they have jobs. to say, that is a four letter word. you can't turn that into chileans. his whole thing about job creators, that is fine. republicans on that space now. later contentment cannot most americans right now are neither job creators nor jobs acres -- job seekers. the vast majority of households in this country are jobholders. not job creators. what was the message exactly? i do not know, and i paid attention. i look silly what the message should be to them. -- i know what the message should be to them. my household has two or three jobs, we are not worried about losing our jobs. the jobs bill longer enough. when

negotiation, and we are going to see this in the debt ceiling. if you are right about this, there are people in trends in congress. they come from districts. they come from states where this is not their issue, so congress is polarized around the issue of poverty. we said there is a bipartisan consensus parliament does not matter. if you are right about your assessment, how do we imagine the plight of the four is going to get a dress? >> just what you have been giving these lawyers about. -- these blurbs about. people have to stop being silent. anytime i get a phone call in my office i believe at least 50 of my constituents believe the exact same thing. if you start calling your congress people and senators and saying to them you want to address poverty, trust that they listen. do not just assume or be angry when you turn on the news that television cannot talk to a spirited you have to do it yourself, because if you do not -- television cannot talk to us. you have to do it yourself. people get news media about food stamps, and everyone forgets about it. until we get more voices, unti

cliff and the debt ceiling or passing the american's jobs act to get americans back to work, that requires we the people and why the speech was so powerful on monday. it's not about me the government. he's not talking about the government, he's talking about citizens coming together and putting pressure on elected officials to do what's right to help our fellow citizens and i think that that is the unifying message that we all need to take away from monday. it wasn't necessarily a partisan speech, it was a progressive speech, that's true. >> a very liberal speech. >> he was a very american unifying message. >> kelly: angela. the final word. >> in his speech, the government is for the people, by the people. so she's right. we have the responsibility to state our grievances and we need call on members of congress and they're not doing what they're supposed to do, vote him out. >> kelly: and we thank you ladies for joining us and sharing your insights and perspective where things stand with the president being the unifier in chief or the divider in chief, but we, the people, should s

reelection in 2014. good old saxby, well, he is just sick of the gridlock. the debt ceiling debacle of 2011 and the recent fiscal cliff vote showed congress at its worse, and sadly, i don't see the legislative gridlock and partisan posturing improving any time soon. really. chambliss has a lot of nerve blaming gridlock and that's why he's got to leave. the senator has been a loyal foot soldier in mitch mcconnell's obstructionist army, wouldn't you say? chambliss doesn't have much to hang his hat on after ten years in the upper chamber. the gentleman from georgia is most famous for the underhanded way he got to the senate in the first place. just a year after 9/11, saxby chambliss used images of osama bin laden and saddam hussein next to pictures of his opponent, senator max cleland. senator cleland lost three of his limbs and received the silver and bronze star during his service in vietnam. chicken hawk chambliss of course dodged vietnam using two deferments due to bad knees from a football injury. the commercial was one of the scummiest in modern history. at the time, senator john mccain condemned the commercials that we

debate, working our way through a debt ceiling debate, i think in a responsible manner, with an eye towards trying to fix some problems. >> when you look at the options out there, president obama's budget proposal and paul ryan's offer, they both don't do what guys like you say need to be done, balancing the budget for a long time. now you guys have a proposal or you're coming with a proposal that says you'll balance a budget in ten years. i asked paul ryan this and i can't get an answer -- how? because it's going to hurt. >> there are new baselines now in the budget. obviously we just -- as we know, some of the difficulty and the differences in washington are centered around the method of accounting, whether it's static or dynamic. because static, when you raise taxes, that additional taxes because of the cliff deal, that adjusts the baseline. that is going to make the numbers look somewhat differently. right? and we veal to make some choices, no question about it. but we have committed to putting a budget out there that will actually bring it to balance within ten years. >> there'

talked to do not talk in terms of fiscal cliffs and debt ceilings. they don't even talk about monthly jobs report. what they talk about is their school -- their kids' school performance. can i balance might tack -- ken i balance my checkbook? can i pay off the bills? the mortgage? a lot of our political leaders talk about things in terms that aren't relevant. the outcome might be relevant but they are not relevant to where most people are in our states, cities, and communities across the country. but we give you a couple of examples. when i first ran for governor i used to tell a story about something i started doing 25 years ago. when i was first working i would pack a lunch every day. it is the same blunt ipad most days in the same -- in the state capitol today. i like to think i did it because i was frugal. my wife would say it was because i was cheap. either way i bring the same lunch. it was great when i worked at the red cross, when i was in the county executive. i put it in a cooler and i eat it when i am in the car, the capital, anywhere else. i told that story when i ran for

debt ceiling chchlt is why 2013 is a make-or-break. >> reporter: if those decisions are postponed again? >> it will be pushing the can down the road again and i don't think the u.s. should fall into that trap. >> reporter: economically if they do, what will be the effect? >>. >> if they do? i hope it's not addressed in the cards. i think it's leave uncertainty at the table and uncertainties are not good for confidence. lack of confidence does not facilitate investment and creation of jobs and so forth. and the u.s. is a huge economy. >> reporter: the imf forecasts the global economy will grow about 3.5% this year a good number, lagarde says but not a great one. we've avoided the chance she says. let's beware of a relapse. rebecca? thanks anthony. this lagarde, she's a pretty interesting person and has redefined the role of the imf, hasn't she? >> reporter: it's first time the imf has become kind of a rock star. she's trailed all over the media halls by cameras. she's pretty forthcoming. more ominous than a lot people. following her is a lot like following hillary clinton. in fact

can use the debt ceiling, which you can, in the end, pull the trigger on -- which you cannot, in the end, fully drawn. it would be catastrophic. it means to have to cut spending by 40% overnight, which you cannot do. unless you can execute the glove, don't good because obama will call it as he called it on generate first of this year, has he would with the debt ceiling. don't execute if you cannot carry out the block. i hope you weren't applauding carry out the blood appeared in which case, my entire argument is undermined and has gone nowhere. >> i think there is a small contingent. >> and they are on suicide watch. i hope their shoelaces have been removed. [laughter] so you do what i think the house members in their retreat in williamsburg very cleverly did. you pick your fights and you don't try to govern from one house. you get very small advances. i recommended last week, that in return for a temporary debt ceiling for three months, the the return to the senate and produce a budget. they adopted the idea and they have already succeeded. the senate will now produce a budget,
